The hard headed business hacks at The Street say Apple has signed up US network Verizon as the carrier for an Apple tablet with built-in 3G.
The Apple 3G tablet will be data only unlike the Archo's rumoured Android toting tablet. Obviously given Apple's Soviet-style secrecy there's no hint of a release date.
It's likely that the Apple 3G tablet will run some flavour of OS X but tweaks are bound to be needed to suit the new device.
As for a British carrier for the tempting touchscreen tablet, it's again all to play for. Vodafone does own a chunk of Verizon but the US 3G standard is different to ours.
Steve Jobs has slated the idea of a Apple tablet in the past but remember, he said the same about video iPods. A few months later, a video iPod hoved into view.
Do you fancy fondling a touchscreen 3G tablet from Apple or will the high-price and form factor prove too much to swallow?
Take a read of the previous rumours that make us think an Apple 3G touchscreen tablet is a cert for October.
